Most underrated Xbox 360 games.

Well, when we read a review, and the reviewer just keeps pointing out the bad things about the game, and gives it such a low score, we feel that the game is underrated.

I my personal opinion, I think Bionic Commando was a huge underrated game.
I had alot of fun with that game, it had its flaws, but no game is perfect.

I also believe Mirror's Edge was really underrated game. It was something new that didn't get everyones attention. I personally loved that game, it was something really fresh and new.


What games do you think was really underrated ?

I don't think mirror's edge was really underrated just over priced. As for underrated games, nothing comes to mind atm.

Saint's Row 2. Much funner to play than it's GTA counterpart, but since it's GTA and GTA has a reputation, it gets the crown.

I've got 80 hours on my SR2 file, over half of it from AFTER 100% completion. GTAIV... all I've done is two playthroughs and a T&D playthrough. Totaling close to under 50ish hours.

Clive Barker's Jericho IMHO is the most underrated game on the 360. I didnt initially play it because of the bad reviews a couple of sites gave it. One day on vacation I was bored and decided eh why not rent it. I ended up beating it while on vacation and finally purchased it during Best Buy's $10 game sale

Mirrors Edge was amazing and was well reviewed but it didn't sell well I think because it was so different.

EDF 2017 is another that comes to mind as being very very underrated. I played that one over at a friend's house and need to get ahold of it since I had a very good time playing it.

Mirror's Edge, Prince of Persia, Battlefield:BC and Red faction Guerilla.


All those games were reviewed well but got so little attention from the majority of gamers. IMO POP was the best game of all last year, and Bad Company was a better shooter than any of the COD games.

I really think The Darkness was underrated. I love that game. I still own it. Very unique story and cool innovative gameplay. Then again I'm a fan of the comics.

I also think the original Overlord was underrated. I haven't had a chance to play 2 yet.

Funner isn't a word.

Saints Row 2 was pretty highly acclaimed by many sites and magazines.

Mirror's Edge, people I talk to always call it either crap or a girl's game

Clive Barker's Jericho, too many people just focus on a slightly dodgy ending whilst ignoring a game that I actually thought was pretty good.

No I didn't mean it was underrated by the reviews, it was underrated by the poor sells it had.

EXACTLY !! They laugh at it, and say that's all you get from Xbox 360! (Jerks don't know that this game is multiplatform, and one hell of a game it is)

Let's see...

The Bourne Conspiracy - Too bad it was extremely short. They should have made it across all the games. A ton of fun to play.
Jericho - A lot better than what people/reviews say about it. I think the ending was about as dumb as it possibly could be.
Don King's Prizefighter - The simplicity of it makes it fun...I don't know why but I just really like this game.
Star Trek: Legacy - Another one where if you like Star Trek, you will really like this. I didn't think it got it's due. Damn shame too.

I'd say Mirror's Edge and Too Human. Though Mirror's Edge is a bit overpriced. I thought Too Human was too, but I managed to sink 40 hours into that game and it only has 4 levels.

Burnout Paradise - I know it's not badly rated at all but it's actually a lot better than it gets credit for. Infact it probably should of won game of the year in 2008 but didn't as it was overshadowed by things like GoW2 and GTA.

This game has as much playability as either, coupled with some of the best DLC i've seen. Infact it's one of about 3 games (of a collection of 30ish) that I actually thought it's worth buying DLC for. Burnout Paradise is miles ahead of anything those monkeys EA can make with NFS (except Shift might prove ok) and Criterion is one of the most under rated developers to boot.

Saints Row 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company. They are very underrated in my opinion, I think they are some of the best titles in their genre.

Saints Row 2 is much more fun to play online than any other sand box game, and they have some great features which GTA doesn't have. Bad Company is excellent, one of my favourite games of all time. Much more realism and the graphics are stunning, also the maps are gigantic.

It was fun but the amount of bugs and glitches made it deserve terrible ratings.

Where the fuck was the fun in that shitty shitty shitty oh god awful game? It was fucking hard for me to put it in the xbox after playing it once because it was so goddamn bad.

It was prolly the first game that made me so fucking pissed off with how bad it was that i became angry at my coop friend.

Underrated my fucking ass

You need to play more games or just try Just cause which came 3 years earlier and is fucking amazing 10/10 if you compare it to the horrible shit that is mercenaries 2

Even writing about it gets me angry

So you are comparing part 3 against part 5 when they added major stuff in afterwards?

Its not strange that part 5 is better. Because they have been thinking about pushing the franchise a bit in the right direction and added certain game changes.
But with that said part 3 can still be a good game

I think Ninety Nine Nights was definitely under rated. I don't understand why the reviews were so horrible, it really isn't that bad. Actualy, I think it's a good game. Killing a bunch of things is a good way to let out anger XD
The ESRB over rated the game rating too- why the hell was this rated "M"? I think "E 10+" or "T" would be more suitable.

I agree with Brown that SR2 was alot funner to play through and clown around than GTAIV. Also, IMO anyone with an xbox should try Lost Odyssey at least once. Everything from the graphics, to the symphonic soundtrack, to the epic storyline will leave you mesmerized. Shadowrun was also underrated. It came out at about the same time as Modern Warfare but it has so much more strategy and diversity of gameplay that it makes COD look shallow in comparison. RNA must fall
